Things are about to get UGLY!
Just weeks after In Touch Weekly reported that Mariah Carey wants to marry her new beau James Packer, sources tell TMZ the 45-year-old is looking to finalize her divorce ASAP — the only problem is her estranged husband, Nick Cannon, is playing hardball!
The 45-year-old songstress met with high-power Hollywood divorce lawyer Laura Wasser and fellow attorney Melanie Mandles, who believe the father of Mimi’s two kids is “dragging his feet” rather than proceeding with the breakup.

Sources allege it’s all about the money — which isn’t surprising, considering she’s worth a reported half a billion bucks, while his alleged net worth is around $20 million.
TMZ also predicts that she’ll get primary custody of the couple’s kids, four-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
